Congressman Bill Johnson sends letter to major automobile leaders

Posted: Updated:

Republican Congressman Bill Johnson sent a personal letter to heads of several major global automobile makers letting them know about the opportunity they now have in the Mahoning Valley after yesterday's announcement by General Motors: 

According to a news release, the letter was sent to 11 American-based heads of major global automobile makers. 

The letter lays out how, in light of General Motors' recent announcement to "non-allocate" the Lordstown Assembly Plant, competitors of GM now have a huge opportunity in the Mahoning Valley.

"I sent this letter to the heads of 11 automobile manufacturers earlier today," Bill Johnson said. "The site in Lordstown is a ready-made facility in an excellent location along the Ohio Turnpike. This is a hard-working, blue-collar community with a rich manufacturing tradition, with a willing, trained, and ready workforce. If a competitor decides to invest in the Mahoning Valley, they will learn what I already know – quality work and manufacturing is in the DNA of the men and women here."

The letter was sent to the American headquarters of the following companies: Fiat Chrysler, Ford, Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Subaru, Volkswagen AG, Kia, Hyundai, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz.
